In an effort to bring awareness to environmental issues while doing what it can to being a part of the solution, EarthLink has undertaken a sustainability initiative – Sustainable EarthLink. We believe that a more green, sustainable workplace uses less energy, creates less waste and creates a culture where employees know that they are making a difference every day – just by showing up to work. In January 2008, EarthLink received gold certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system for its green initiatives in the 2nd floor build-out of the Bradley building in Pasadena. Our data center has already adopted initiatives to mitigate EarthLink’s environmental impact. This sustainability program will bring together all of EarthLink’s green efforts and gives each of you an opportunity to participate in our commitment to environmental sustainability.

EarthLink is committed to:

  • Reducing the company's electricity usage - you will see a number of things happening throughout the company to accomplish this goal.
  • Purchasing Renewable Energy Credits - these funds support alternative energy solutions such as wind power, solar power and geothermal power. This will also help offset EarthLink's carbon footprint.
  • Purchasing materials such as copy paper, paper plates and other supplies that have a higher recycled content, and recycling a high percentage of the waste created by our company.

We're verifying the EarthLink high speed services available in your area. This will only take a few more moments.
